Update on my problem..
I connected the pi2 to a spare monitor with a dvi adapter.
Kodi exits back to ES just fine without issues.
Still no idea why it doesn’t like my TV..
EDIT: Problem solved. Disabled that Pulse-Eight HDMI CEC addon. What a simple solution..meh
EDIT2: …and it started acting up after testing it for a bit with plexbmc. Wouldn’t play anything after 3-4 videos so I quit and the black screen is back. Not sure if it’s kodi or plexbmc but one thing’s for sure..I’m done using it. It’s too unstable for my needs.
